Pinarayi 2.0 and A Game of Thrones in Kerala

Pinarayi Vijayan was recently elected as Chief Minister of Kerala for a second term. In addition to whether he is going to continue with the same PR model of governance that proved successful for him and if he is going to continue with the backdoor appointments and scams and scandals that Malayalis don’t seem to mind, another aspect that needs to be closely observed in the next 5 years is the developing power struggle within Kerala CPIM. People who follow Kerala politics know, Pinarayi is a master at political maneuvering and orchestrating power grab. The seeds of the current power politics playing out in the Kerala CPIM were laid ahead of the recent assembly elections when Pinarayi created an arbitrary rule and denied tickets to most senior party leaders and sidelined the few who got elected from inclusion in the state cabinet. In this vlog I examine this brewing game of thrones in Kerala politics.

Kerala, Communists, Statues and Hypocrisy Letters from the basement

In this year's full budget of Kerala, CPIM state government has  allocated 4 crores for construction of memorials to 2 politicians who  died recently. One of them was a convict in a corruption case. The very  same communists cannot stop ridiculing Sardar Patel's Statue of Unity in  Gujarat as an example of government wastage. This attitude is typical  of the Leftist ecosystem in our country. I discuss this in detail with  examples in this letter from the basement.
